Mirror Mirror on the wall .....

Seriously buy another 40gB IDE as they are dirt cheap and mirror it, maybe do 
the same with the SCSI. Loads less hassle in the event of a drive failure.

  Subject: [exchangelist] Disk partition for Ex2k with Disaster recovery....

  Hi! Expertise,

  I'm planning to hookup another exchange 2000 server, with disaster recovery 
in mind. So I read some Microsoft articles with related to disaster recovery 
specially - Disaster recovery exchange 2000.pdf article. What they say is you 
have to have 6 hard disks.

  Unfortunately I do not have much $$$$ . so my plan is to have a 2 SCSI 
Drivers - 18GB each and 1 IDE Hard Drive - 40GB, and the hard disk partition 
scheme is..

  FDisk 1 (IDE HD) - Driver C: (Fat16)-windows 2000 boot files and Active 
drive, 100MB Primary partition

  -          Drive d: (NTFS) - windows 2000 operating system files and swap 
files Remaining capacity Extended Partition

  FDisk 2 (SCSI) - Drive E: (NTFS) - Exchange 2000 files and additional server 
applications, 100% full extended partition

  FDisk 3 (SCSI) - Drive F: (NTFS) - transaction log files and database files. 
100% full extended partition

  Can I know from you all is this disk partition setups are ok!

  This will give low performance due to use of the IDE HD?????????

  Or this is not the way..

  Thank you in advance
